Background, overview and recap articles: Many people have long suspected that governments sometimes attempt to indoctrinate their people to increase the government's own power and influence.

Beginning in early K and continuing to the highest levels of university education, Leftist indoctrination is the gravest dilemma that afflicts education in North America, rendering it perhaps the most powerful instrument of anti-Western bias and socialist propaganda of the modern era.
Here my concern is with the abandonment of genuine scholarship, fact-based historical research, familiarity with the "Great Books" and the development of critical thinking habits, particularly in the humanities and social sciences.
